After Two Week Hiatus, Trade Mag Back In Business

According to Los Angeles Times, Duncan McIntosh Co., an Irvine magazine and newspaper publisher, bought Editor & Publisher from the Nielsen Co. late Thursday afternoon and immediately resumed online operations.
“We’re going to continue to be the main information source, the main idea source for the newspaper industry,” said Mark Fitzgerald, who was named E&P’s editor Thursday. “We’re all very excited around here about the news.”
Nielsen officially closed Editor & Publisher on New Year’s Eve after announcing in early December that the magazine would cease publication.
Duncan McIntosh Co. Inc. is the publisher of several boating magazines and newspapers, including Boating World magazine; Sea Magazine, America’s Western Boating Magazine; The Log Newspaper; and FishRap. The company also produces the Newport Boat Show in the spring and the Lido Yacht Expo in the fall.
“I’ve been a reader of E&P over the course of 30 years and know its incredible value to readers and advertisers,” McIntosh said.
